My Dog Thinks He’s a Mermaid

To finish off Dog Week, I will leave you with a few more anecdotes of my hilarious, but rather dim dog Sam. He’s wonderful in most ways and usually a gem (unless we have company over, in which case he’s ridiculously bonkers with pure unbridled excitement). But Sam also loves water. Continue reading

Sorry, Neighbour, Just Trying to Call my Dog

People give their dogs strange names. I know this because, in my lifetime, I have had three dogs, all with very human names.

She purrs when you pet her and doesn’t drool nearly as much as our other dog Sam. Continue reading

And so begins Dog Week…

It’s Dog Week. That’s like Shark Week, but with less water, teeth, and, you know, sharks. It’s all about dogs this week. I will share some hilarious dog-related stories with you and we will all laugh and laugh. Okay, you might not laugh, but I probably will, which is just another reason why I don’t need others to validate my self-worth or comedic value: because I can do it myself. Continue reading
